How SINES Works
Your brain functions in five different states depending upon your emotions and what activity you’re engaged in.
Our music is custom tailored to each mood. By listening to musical reproductions of a brainwave state that corresponds with our desired mood we are able to bring our mind and body into that mood within minutes and synchronize our brain hemispheres.
- DELTA: 0.1-4Hz
- THETA: 4-8Hz
- ALPHA: 8-14Hz
- BETA: 14-30Hz
- GAMMA: 30-100Hz
Our music is based on studies by leading neuroscientists and doctors in sound therapy, brainwave stimulation, and mood-based binaural music.
After listening to music designed to induce theta wave production 78% of subjects were able to enter a meditative state within 5 minutes.

After 30 days of listening participants suffering from anxiety were able to cut their symptoms by 50%.

Subjects who listened to music with delta waves improved their sleep habits by nearly 60% after 30 days.
Tests conducted with subjects who had headaches showed a 90% reduction in pain within 20 minutes of listening to delta wave music.

Memory improvement increased 15% by subjects listening to alpha wave music while reading, engaging in conversation or seminars, and performing other daily tasks.

Listening to binaural music positively affects the production of hormones directly related to longevity of life, well-being, and stress. Subjects’ cortisol levels decreased 46%, DHEA increased by 43%, and melatonin production increased by 98%.

Listening to alpha waves aids in production of serotonin and listening to theta waves helps boost catecholamines, which are vital to memory and learning.

After 13 months studies inside an AA group who listened to binaural music showed only 20% relapse and depression reduction to 1/3 compared to the average program attendee.

Brainwave Synchronization induced by binaural music – when the left and right brain hemispheres operate in harmony a person thinks more effectively, alertness yet relaxation and peace ensues.

Application of 5 Hz binaural-beat stimulation for 15 min, twice per day for 15 days, resulted in a significant increase in the number of words recalled post-stimulation, as measured using the Wechsler III Memory Scale.

Binaural beats at beta (16 & 24 Hz) and theta/delta (1.5 & 4 Hz) ranges for 30 minutes throughout a psychomotor vigilance task showed a less negative mood and improved performance in a vigilance task.

Scientists have discovered that for proper memory formation, the brain must undergo a process called long-term potentiation (LTP), involving electrical and chemical changes in the neurons associated with memory. Without LTP, incoming information is not stored, but rather quickly and totally forgotten. Neurophysiologist Dr. Gary Lynch and associates at the University of California at Irvine discovered that one key aspect of LTP is the Theta brain wave pattern. According to Lynch, this is the natural rhythm of the hippocampus, one major component of the brain essential for the formation and storage of new memories and the recall of old memories.
